Super Duper Burger – Castro District, San Francisco

Super Duper Burger is a ten location burger shoppe spread over San Francisco (6 locations), South Bay  (2 locations) and North Bay (2 locations).  They pride themselves on using ingredients sourced from just miles away from their restaurants to make the ‘perfect burger’ and ensure any product they use is of the highest standard – having travelled across the pond and being a burger fan, this made me curious!

Linked with the above, SDB say that their “slow food values” for fast food make for a higher cost but with a Super Burger (2x 4oz double patties) costing $7.75 I don’t think that’s half bad at all. You can customise your burger with a free selection of salad or bacon/cheese/avocado/egg for a maximum of $1.50 per item and with fries priced at a maximum of $3.25 it’s pretty reasonable.

German Doner Kebab – Angel, London

It’s a Thursday in February. Where are we? Angel, Islington and I’m about to try my first German doner kebab. Now I’m not 100 percent sure exactly what the difference is between a normal doner kebab and a German one, but I do know that from my personal experience in Germany, they are a pretty meaty country so I think they will have their heads in the right place for this. Carry on reading to find out what we thought!

Schwartz’s Deli – Trocadero, Paris

We were loitering around the Trocadero Gardens having a little look at the Eiffel Tower and watching some skateboarders do their thing and at some point hunger approached us. I had a quick google and Schwartz’s Deli popped up….checked out the website and the menu looked pretty HAWT so knew we had to go.

A lot of restaurants in Paris work in an ‘open for lunch, have a break then open for dinner later on’ kind of way and this one was no exception so we had to wait a dreaded half hour until the place opened at seven.  We’d had a look through the window though and the interior was pretty pleasing – done up in an American New York diner style without being too tacky and over the top.   There were lots of pin up girls on the walls – which I approve of – celebrity mug shots, old magazine covers and some Elvis thrown in. Bingo bango.

Bukowski Grill at Boxpark – Shoreditch, London

Next to Shoreditch High Street Overground station in Boxpark you’ll find many a shop, boutique, nail bar and foodery.  One of these fooderies is the Shoreditch location of Bukowski Grill. Personally I love Boxpark and the interesting array of golden shop nuggets it brings us over such a small piece of ground. However just a note to those of you expecting a full restaurant – this is the size of a shipping container.

Within this shipping container I’d say you could seat 12 people max on Bukowski’s wooden bench booths. As Boxpark has a kind of sharing is caring feel to it, there’s also shared bench style seating outside but as it’s February it was too chilly for us so we opted for an inside seat.  It was a fairly quiet day and we were shown to our booth quickly then served straight away.

Spicer + Cole – Queen Square, Bristol

Ooo arr! We’re in the West Country, Bristol to be specific, and it’s BRUNCHTIME following a 30th birthday party. A little dozy and worse for wear, we are wandering Bristol without aim….luckily, we’ve found a brunch spot not far away from the city centre and our hotel. Hooray! It looks safe and there are spare seats, so we step inside.

The menu looked pretty interesting, offering the standard kind of things you’d expect to see in a brunch spot, but my bruncheon of choice was the Harissa Bap. Specifically, the menu read “Bacon house harissa + aioli bap with a poached egg” – interesting. Bit different to my go-to of eggs benedict or something avocado-looking. Continue reading

Patty and Bun – Goodge St, London

Woohoo! A new Patty and Bun opening! Everyone rejoiced!

I had tried Patty and Bun a couple of years back (by Liverpool Street) so took this opportunity to give it another taste and report back to y’all.  I know, the things I do for you hey!

I can’t tell you much about the history of Patty & Bun apart from they started as a pop up but, as Goodge St is their 6th location, P&B are clearly doing something The People like.
